i have an issue with my Roku player. it seems that while i am streaming Sling TV for a few hours it will have to reset itself and go back to the Roku home page. This is inconvenient espically if i am watching a movie on Sling TV. So far i have only seen this happen while streaming Sling, because that is all i really use the Roku streaming box for. i dont have Hulu live so not sure if it does it there also.
It would be your first example. It's stops streaming and goes back to the Roku home page. Just as if I was hitting the 'home' button on my remote. It happens on all of my streaming sticks (I have 3, one in each room with a tv)
Is there any way to customize the length of this timeout?
Nope. Hard coded into the OS.
I have the same problem with both of my Express+ players. Never happened in the past, but it started a couple weeks ago.
I can start watching any app and, within 30 minutes or so, it will suddenly revert to the home screen.
Both of the players are on wi-fi, but the signal is usually strong. Is there any other issue that can cause this to happen?
